Let's talk about PURSES AND SHOES!
Purses and shoes are our most important accessories; no woman leaves the house without them. There are no more rules for combining bags and shoes. The only rule is that the purse and shoes do not need to match and generally should be different colours. Matching is not trendy, and, conversely, immediately makes you look outdated.
Here are some standard rules, which work for both bags and shoes.
1. They can be neutral or an accent. If you already have an accent in your outfit, let the shoes and bag be neutral. Or, vice versa; any outfit can be "spiced up" by adding a bright pair of shoes or an unusual bag.
2. If the budget is limited, let the first purchase be neutral, to ensure the maximum coverage of your wardrobe and spend money on the most versatile purchase.
3. Neutral does not mean black! Deep tones for the winter (wine red, dark blue, dark khaki, and eggplant) are perfect for everything, but less boring. For summer, try lighter shades such as blue, beige, and caramel.
4. Items in patent leather look cheaper than articles with a matte finish.
5. Shiny, excessive detailing also makes a poor first impression. Choose bags with matte hardware, and basic shoes without it at all.
6. Size matters. The size of the purse or the thickness of the heel must match your complexion. Bigger the woman, bigger the bag and thicker the heels. Otherwise, against a small clutch or a thin stiletto, you will look much heavier.
